Four years ago, Johnny Knoxville put the kibosh on the idea of a Jackass sequel. Liar. Now he’s returning to the franchise that introduced us to the so-sick-yet-so-frickin’-funny world of wasabi snorting and nipple-chewing baby alligators. ”I was ready to move on,” recalls costar Bam Margera. ”But when Knoxville called, I was like, ‘I’m ready to get hurt again!”’ And there was plenty of pain — Knoxville says that the six-month shoot got ”dangerously close to a snuff film a couple of times.” They won’t give any specifics, but Margera will admit this: ”We’re pretty much half-nude 70 percent of the film. Because [being naked] is much funnier.”
